Vermont was the only New England state to experience a decline in median home price in June. However, its 22.3 percent increase in home sales was second only to Connecticut. All six New England States experienced a 3-month trend uptick in June of 21.7 percent. For the first time in the past three months, Vermont realized a price decline of -4.0 percent, with all other states continuing to see month-over-month price increases.While year-over-year sales and prices remain sluggish in New England, the consistent monthly numbers suggests that the market has hit bottom. Changes in financing requirements, unemployment and overall uncertainty continue to be the barriers that are slowing recovery.‘The positive trend in home sales coupled with steady price increases are strong indicators that we are in the midst of a slow recovery,’ said RE/MAX of New England Executive Vice President, Jay Hummer. ‘The housing market has turned the corner and while we may ride some bumps along the bottom, I feel the housing market recovery has begun.’

He was constantly the subject of trade rumors, and though he might not have been destined to spend his entire career in one place, he certainly put down roots, which has created a bit of a learning curve playing for a new team for the first time. NANCE UPDATEA day after breaking a bone in his left hand, forward Larry Nance Jr. underwent surgery and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks.The surgery to replaced the fractured second metacarpal was performed by Dr. Steven S. Shin.Coach Luke Walton opted to start rookie Kyle Kuzma in Nance’s place. In eight games, Nance averaged 10.6 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game.“I think we’ll be more equipped to handle it right now than we were when we lost Zo in the preseason, we lost Brook in the preseason,” Walton said. “Because we were still trying to put so much stuff in. But obviously Larry’s been so solid for us since the season’s started.”ALSOCenter Andrew Bogut was inactive against the Nets due to tightness in his back.

LOS ANGELES — It was easy to forget on Friday that D’Angelo Russell was not the only player facing a team that had drafted him and made him the face of the franchise.Brook Lopez spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Nets, first in New Jersey and then helping lead the migration to Brooklyn. He was an All-Star in 2013, reached the playoffs twice and last season became a 3-point threat before being traded to the Lakers in exchange for Russell.“I am sure it will be weird,” Lopez said after the loss in Portland on Thursday, “but I always try to prepare for every game the same way. Keep as many things normal and keep the variables down as much as possible.”Related Articles Asked about his former center, Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson described Lopez as a “great guy, incredibly skilled player. Heck of a player, ton of respect for him. I enjoyed being around him every day.”Lopez is in the final season of a maximum contract extension he signed in 2015.From the other side of the floor on Thursday, Lopez looked at a team that has radically transformed even since he last played there. As the franchise welcomed, and then said goodbye to, stars like Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, Lopez was a constant.Eventually, the Nets bid him farewell, too.“I always wanted to see a great foundation built there and be a part of that,” Lopez said. “It is tough not being a part of that. I wanted to see something great built there and that didn’t exactly happen.”
